Does anybody know of any New Mexican restaurants in the greater Los Angeles area? I'm talking about the cuisine from the state of New Mexico. If you've ever been there and eaten it, you know what I'm talking about-- red and green chile (spelled with an 'e'), stacked enchiladas, sopaipillas, etc. I'm not asking about south of the border Mexican-Mexican food, Tex-Mex, or Cali-Mex, all of which I'm sure can be found in abundance. If you have any suggestions, please post them. Also, where in LA can you buy New Mexico-grown chile peppers?

Default New Mexican cusine out of New Mexico!

Hello I know what you are missing!! All my family is from there & I love the food!! And miss it terriblly!! Here is what I know I hope it helps!
Try Anita's in Fullerton below you will find the address & phone #! Also If your name implies connection to Sin City Definately try Garduno's on the Casino level inside the Palms They have Great food there closets you can get to the real thing this side of Sadies in ABQ or grandma's house!! As to finding the stuff to do it yourself I can tell you that IF you find a good HIspanic super Mkt you can sometimes find frozen green diced roasted & seeded chile in small butter sized tubs as well as Mild ones in 4oz. cans under the Hatch brand! New Mexico Red chile is Alot easier to find & most good mkts carry it in powder form & the same ethnic markets Almost always have Both Whole & powdered red chile!! Other than that your best bet believe it or not is Ebay!! LOL Thru them you will find fresh & frozen green chile, green chile powder, any form of red chile even the Infamous Chimayo red chile powder (my personal favorite!!) as well as other goodies like piniones (pine nuts) blue corn meal, canned chile red & green under the Hatch brand some of which you can Sometimes Get REALLY lucky & find at the 99 Cent stores here locally in So Cali!! LOL Though I find it personally to be way to mild though ALot more flavorfull than the Usual suspects that you will encounter in Other Mkts in 4oz. cans!! I hope this helps you OH & please do look for the guy on Ebay that sells fresh green chile during the prime picking months (Aug-Sept.!) he sells organically grown Big Jims as well as a few other varieties all grown locally in the Rio Grande valley at a fair priced shipped to your dorr via USPS Prioity 2-3 buisnes day mail!!

Would that there were a New mexico style restaurant in SoCal. If you have tried the cuisine from the Chimayo area, or Las cruces or even Albaquerque, then you know what I mean. As far as Chile colorado, Rosie's restaurant in Hatch is the benchmark.

Anita's Sucks! It use to be good, but it's watered down. There is this
hole-in the- wall place in Arcadia called Little Joe's.... It is great! The red and green sauce is authentic as are the sopapillas. Look it up on the internet.

Ate New Mexican style food in Las Cruces once. It was quite delicious and I did not even know such a variation existed before I visited Las Cruces.

I'm opening up this thread again to see if anyone's been to a NM restaurant in LA. I'm craving some of the food I had while I was in Las Cruces.
